He announced this during a ceremony in the St. George's Hall of the Grand Kremlin Palace, Vedomosti reports.

At the ceremony, Artem Zhoga, the father of the deceased leader of the Sparta terrorist battalion fighting on the side of Russia in eastern Ukraine, asked Putin if he would run for president. "Yes, I will," Putin replied. This will be the fifth presidential election for Vladimir Putin. Earlier, TASS reported, citing the Russian Central Election Commission, that next year's presidential election would be a multi-day affair.

"For the first time, the presidential elections will be multi-day, they will be held from March 15 to 17," the Russian Central Election Commission said. Election day voting will take place from February 25 to March 15.

House-to-house voting will take place in the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine, as well as in the Bryansk, Kursk, and Belgorod regions of the Russian Federation, Russian propagandists say. Earlier, TASS wrote that the Federation Council unanimously decided to call presidential elections in Russia. 162 deputies voted for it. According to the head of the Federation Council Committee on Constitutional Legislation and State Building, Andrey Klishas, the resolution will actually launch the election campaign. The presidential election is to be called by the Federation Council no earlier than 100 days and no later than 90 days before the election day.

  • On November 6, Reuters reported, citing its own sources, that Russian dictator Vladimir Putin had decided to run for president in 2024, and that his advisers were already preparing for the campaign.
  • On November 9, ISW analysts noted that Putin is likely to avoid the war in Ukraine during his 2024 presidential campaign. Instead, he will focus on the alleged stability in Russia and criticizing the West.

  • On November 20, Russian media reported that the Kremlin had told the regions what result Putin should have in the 2024 elections
